Francesca Hilton died ,Monday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following an apparent heart attack or stroke. She was 67.
Constance Francesca Hilton born in New York in 1947, was the only child of Zsa Zsa Gabor and the youngest child of Conrad Hilton the founder of the Hilton Hotel Chain.
Hilton worked at various times as an actress, photographer and publicist.
In an 2008 interview with the LA Times: My mother’s boyfriends took me everywhere,” “They tried to buy me things so I would tell my mother to marry them.”
“She is, in her own way, a fighter to have survived with her own identity,” Jaglom said in the 2008 Times story. “She tried to have her own normal life and become her own normal person. To me, that’s a bit of an accomplishment when you come from that background.”
In the last few years she fought a long-running legal battle with her mother’s husband, Frederic von Anhalt, over control of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s finances and medical care. A Los Angeles judge granted the conservatorship, but made Von Anhalt the temporary conservator of her mother’s finances, which were to be used only for her care. The judge also ordered that Hilton be allowed to visit her 97 year old mother.

Francesca’s passing may leave Zsa Zsa as the last Gabor in the United States. Her mother emigrated to the United States in 1941 from Hungary. Her grand mother Jolie followed in 1945. Her aunts Magda and Eva Gabor did not have children.
According to Gabor’s 1991 autobiography One Lifetime Is Not Enough, her pregnancy resulted from rape by then-husband Conrad Hilton who died in 1979.
